Second Career

 Second Career is an Ontario government program

that will pay for your tuition

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SECOND CAREER

The Second Career strategy launched by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities pays for the training or education that Ontarians require to get a better job. It provides financial help up to $28,000, or more in some cases, to pay for:

  • Tuition
  • Living Expenses
  • Help caring for dependents
  • Travel
  • Transportation
  • Disability supports
  • Other living and training costs
  • Books

 

Those who qualify may have some or all of these costs covered within the Second Career Strategy. In order to find out if you qualify for Second Career or any other government funding, all candidates must visit an Employment Ontario assessment center for an assessment interview.

Eligibility for Second Career Funding

Who is eligible?

Eligible individuals are those who have been laid-off on or after January 1, 2005 – including EI active claimants, EI “reach backs,” and non-EI-eligible individuals – who require skills training for employment in demand occupations in Ontario.

“Laid-off worker” is an individual who has been laid off on or after January 1, 2005, including someone who:

  • is still unemployed.
  • has taken one or more interim jobs to make ends meets but is currently unemployed.
  • has taken one or more interim jobs to make ends meets and is currently employed in such a job.
  • is on salary continuance. (Salary continuance is an alternative to providing a laid-off worker with pay in lieu of notice or severance. The employees receive their salary as per the regular pay schedule for a designated period and they may receive some or all of their benefits as well.)
  • is on severance. (Severance is a lump sum entitlement paid to an employee upon termination of employment. Severance compensates the employee for loss of seniority and job related benefits.)

 

Please contact your local Employment Ontario office for confirmation of your eligibility for financial assistance under the Second Career program.
